"★★★★★ Fantastic property buying and selling experience through Seymours Estate Agents in Dorking. David and his team at Serymours were incredibly proactive in both getting us the right deal for our property and introducing us to our ideal home. Better still, they were proactive and supportive the whole way along the process right through to completion in just a few months. Friendly, non-pushy local estate agents that my partner and I have no reservations recommending and would certainly use again! Thank you"
"★★★★★ No need to look anywhere else in Dorking to sell your property. The customer service I received from Jamie, David and Heather throughout the sale of my house was nothing short of impeccable. From the very beginning, it was clear that they are a team of professionals who do their research, and don't just tell you what you want to hear. I wouldn't hesitate to use Seymours again."
"★★★★★ I could not recommend Seymours enough! From the moment they came to value our house, I instantly knew they were the estate agents to sell our property and I was completely right. David, Jamie and Heather have such a personal approach and sold our house within a week! The service they have provided throughout the whole process has been outstanding, helpful and reassuring. People say moving house is stressful, however using Seymours makes it that little bit easier."
"★★★★★ We couldn’t have asked for a better service!!! My wife and I cannot thank Seymours Estate Agents, Dorking, enough for their very professional and helpful service in the sale of our house. We have been on the market with two other well established agents in the town and had 4 failed transactions! We really could not have wished for a better service. Jamie Hynes, in particular, was incredibly professional and knowledgeable; nothing was too much trouble and once he had found us a buyer, his constant updates to all parties and lengthy experience in the business gave us confidence that this time our sale was going to happen! Without his efforts I truly believe we would still be struggling with open houses/failed purchases and be exhausted with the whole process. We wanted to say a massive thank you to him and the team which has enabled us to finally move on, as previously planned over a year ago! We would highly recommend Seymours if you want a dedicated, experienced, hard-working team on your side! Ken and June - Betchworth"
"★★★★★ Seymours have been absolutely great from the very beginning I couldn't recommended them enough. They took time to understand our family set up and therefore what would work during the selling process. Whenever I phoned the office everyone knew the details of the sale and I didn't need to wait until David was in the office to get the answers I needed. When they said they would ring back they did, I didn't have to chase them. On the approach of exchange our chain got quite complicated and stressfuland but Seymours worked extremely hard in getting us to a successful conclusion and really went above and beyond. If you want a less stressful move then I would most definitely recommend Seymours of Dorking."
"★★★★★ Quite honestly, I could not have got through the whole process with anyone else. Jamie, David and Heather worked (as I felt) like my own personal and private estate agents. It was the first house I have ever bought and was so afraid of doing it on my own, as divorced with kids, no grown up and moved on. A professional, dedicated, helpful, efficient and extremely friendly team. If anyone is looking to buy or sell a house then this is the team to have."
"★★★★★ Absolutely delighted with the service we received from the lovely team at Seymour's. After a rather unsuccessful couple of months with another Estate Agency in town we decided to move our property to Seymour's. Superb team, excellent communication and a full asking price sale from the first person to view. After accepting an offer we have had great communication for the team and always find them friendly and approachable. I would recommend 100%. Thank-you David, Jamie and Heather :-)"

"★★★★★ The best estate agents in Dorking. Such a friendly team, went the extra mile to help us sell our house. By far the most competitive price for our house sale and achieved in excess of the purchase price. Would highly recommend as they marketed our property in the most professional and personal manor we could have asked for. Thank you David and Jamie"
"★★★★★ A professional, hard working, dedicated, successful and friendly estate agent that has been an absolute pleasure buying our first home with. Having recently purchased our first house through Seymours Estate Agents Dorking, we cannot praise enough the tireless efforts both Jamie and David have gone to in making our experience so stress free and enjoyable! From viewing the property for the first time, to exchange, completion and all the other unforeseen bumps along the way, Jamie has provided us with a wealth of advice and assurance throughout the process. Jamie's continual correspondence with not only ourselves, but also with our finance adviser (of which Jamie recommended and was equally as devoted to the cause) and solicitors has been immensely impressive, given that I am sure not all of which is within his job description! During the sale of the property, Jamie has gone over and above the call of duty, and we cannot thank him enough! Despite not working directly with David, his ongoing efforts to care for us when Jamie has not been present truly goes to show what a committed company Seymours Dorking is. We feel privileged to of bought our first home with such a helpful team of people, and are proud to recommend Seymours Dorking to all and everyone of our friends and family. A huge and almighty thank you to Seymours Dorking for our dream first home!"
